Fundamental Kettlebell Movements
Coach DeRoehn breaks down the fundamental movements in kettlebell training: the swing and clean. The swing has excellent carryover in wrestling due to the emphasis on the hip hinge movement that occurs in most wrestling actions. Excellent examples of this are shown throughout the video
